Good exit opportunities for AMZN Applied Scientists in Seattle

Sep 12, 2019 10 Comments

What are some good next companies (TC, growth, learning) for an Amazon Applied Scientist in Seattle?

Google doesn't have ML roles in Seattle. Facebook has research scientist openings in Seattle but has a very high bar (I was told by recruiter that you need to have 30+ publications).

      What positions would you recommend for an applied scientist in Lyft Seattle? I see only one research scientist opening (requires experience with spatiotemporal data)

    FB recruiter is BSing you. Most tenured faculty don't even have 30+ publications, and certainly not the FB research scientists. You can get a research scientist position at FB with very few (or even 0) publications.

    Google has lot of computer vision related efforts in Seattle. Not sure if your ML background is geared towards computer vision. Microsoft can be a good choice too.
